When residents of the American West Coast started modifying Brazilian culinary customs of preparing mixed juices with components like almonds, the idea of the smoothie was developed. In actuality, the first varieties to gain popularity and acceptance around the world were the banana and pineapple smoothies. Both of these recipes were included in the widely used and favoured Waring "Blendor" cookbooks.
Smoothies first gained popularity in the 1960s and then went mainstream in the 1990s when cafes, and large hypermarkets started to offer them at counters. In essence, the smoothie is a combination of any number of ingredients. The drink originally only came in sweet variations (fruits with yoghurt or just fruits with syrup), but more recent iterations have also included vegetable smoothies.
The Cherry Smoothie has been a favourite among patrons. Healthy and delicious, cherries often miss out on getting their deserved attention. Found mostly as accompaniments to desserts, cherries have hardly ever taken centre-stage in any dish. Cherry Smoothies generally have a yoghurt base and are ideally served cold. Cherries are most well-known for its sweet-sour combination and its distinctive aftertaste.
Their rich reserve of vitamin C aids in human immune systems and promotes skin health. Potassium, another element found in cherries, regulates blood pressure, is a prime player behind proper muscle contraction, and is crucial for several other bodily functions. The high fibre levels ensure that the fruit is a good digestive as well, enhancing functions of the gut bacteria that enables proper bowel movement. Other nutrients that cherries contain include ones like copper, magnesium, manganese, vitamins B and K.
Cherry Smoothies are a favoured go-to option for office goers, who love the creamy yoghurt mixed with the acidic fruits. It is not only a healthy glassfull, but it’s deliciously sinful as well.
